Give A Man

James Thomson

Give a man a horse he can ride,
Give a man a boat he can sail;
And his rank and his wealth, his strength and health,
On sea nor shore shall fail.

Give a man a pipe he can smoke,
Give a man a book he can read;
And his home is bright with a calm delight,
Though the room be poor indeed.

Give a man a girl he can love,
As I, O my Love, love thee;
And his heart is great with the pulse of Fate,
Ar home, on land, on sea.

Mrs M. E. E. Boston
